Character Aesthetic: Evie Cappeli

I thought I'd do something a little different this time around, and show off some knitting and crochet patterns that remind me the characters in THE SPIDER'S WEB and THE FERRYMEN. All of these patterns are available on Ravelry. Some of them are free, some are not. And no, none of these are my designs.… Continue reading Character Aesthetic: Evie Cappeli

Dru Faust and the Devil’s Due, part 26 CONCLUSION

Well, with a blog post, really. Not mine. You see, last Friday an interview I did with Dianna L. Gunn on her… Continue reading An apology, a cover, and a really long Twitter thread
